[FIRST LOOK] is where we introduce a new pop-up for the very first time. It's now in our Upcoming calendar and should be in yours too.
For a city of dog lovers, we're surprised it took this long for a pet-centric pop-up to take place.
When Virginie Lamarche and Bastien Desfriches Doria approached us with the idea of a Dog Photo Salon series we jumped on the opportunity to work with them. The talented Vancouver-based photography duo known as VNB are the same folks behind the recently completed Vancouver Creatives photography series - a collection of 22 handprinted portraits of some of the best creative talent in Vancouver, and the Post/Past Exhibition Project involving 90+ portraits of participating artists and curators of the Vancouver Biennale.
The duo are also the founders of Vanalogue Photobooth. The artisan mobile photobooth crafts instant classics - black and white portraits on authentic silver gelatin prints. Shot on special coated paper and vintage large format cameras hooked to strobes, all portraits are hand printed on-the-spot in a pop-up darkroom.
#AnalogueDog is the initial launch of an exciting and original two-day "Dog Photo Salon" series @thisopenspace. The monthly series brings together 100% analogue and timeless fine art portraiture to proud Vancouver dogs and owners along with some of the city’s best pet industry products and services available today, There will be three Vancouver-based pet apparel, accessories and diet creators including innovative raw and layered artisan treats by Pawsh Chops, comfy and pretty hypoallergenic beds and cushions by Upcycled Canine, as well as Danes & Divas’ must-have elegant and handcrafted bow ties, collars, and leashes.
#AnalogueDog is all about love and affection for every four-legged companions out there and classic black-and-white photography done right. Prints are available in 5x7 or 8x10 Silver Gelatin portraits all hand-processed and hand-printed on the spot in an ingenious foldable darkroom. Bonus: each print comes a free high-resolution and web-ready digital file so you can still upload the photo for guaranteed likes.
